Mott 32’s chefs utilise the latest in modern and innovative cooking techniques from around the world to create dishes, which are principally Cantonese with some Beijing and Szechuan influences. The food aims to bring the best out of time-honoured recipes passed down from generation to generation; it is this level of modernity, combined with a respect for tradition, that makes Mott 32 so spectacularly unique.
Wherever possible, Mott 32 sources organic and sustainable ingredients, working closely with local farms and suppliers to ensure uncompromising quality. Signature dishes include the 42 Days Apple Wood Roasted Peking Duck, as well as a selection of dim sum made freshly by hand every day.

APPLEWOOD ROASTED PEKING DUCK
Widely acknowledged as the “Best Peking Duck in Hong Kong” this is one of the key culinary signatures of Mott 32 Worldwide.
Mott 32 has carefully sourced and selected the best ducks to create the most flavourful and perfectly crispy duck. Our Signature 42 day Apple Wood Roasted Peking Duck is carved using a unique technique developed by our Culinary Team that locks in all the juices making it a true feast fit for royalty as it was intended. It is served tableside with freshly steamed pancakes, thinly sliced cucumber, scallions, raw cane sugar, and house-made special hoisin sauce; the juicy cucumber will allow a refreshing lift as you bite into the crispy, moist, and smoky duck skin.
Available by pre-order only and recommended for around 3-4 guests.
Our dim sum chefs source ingredients from all over the world to recreate traditional recipes using modern and creative cooking techniques.
Chef Lee has captured Hong Kong’s attention with his soft-boiled quail egg, cleverly placed inside an iberico pork Siu Mai with black truffle. This small but powerful bite perfectly encapsulates Mott 32’s commitment to reconceptualising classic Chinese recipes.
Mott 32 is committed to sustainability and proud to be the one of the first Chinese fine-dining restaurants to offer plant-based alternatives.
Many of our signature dishes are created with plant based alternatives including our flavourful Shanghainese Soup Dumplings made with Minced “Pork” and Tofu, and our Signature Smoked “Cod”. These vegetarian and vegan adapted versions are the result of months of research and development by the Mott 32 culinary team, showcasing delicious and sustainable alternatives that do not compromise on taste or flavour.
Our signature menus may be refreshed with special items that are curated for the day. All menu items and prices are subject to change according to seasonality and availability.
